I practice in the five-county Philadelphia region and have been practicing Family Law for over thirty years. I am married and have five children, all of whom live within 2 hours of Philadelphia. I am an avid golfer and sports fan.
I am very active in the Philadelphia Bar Association Family Law Section and have been an Officer and on the Executive Committee for many years. In 2015, I will have the honor of being the Chair of the Family Law Section of the Philadelphia Bar Association, the oldest Bar Association in America. I currently also serve on the Executive Committee of the Section.
I am a founding member of the Nicholas Cipriani Family Law American Inn of Court and served as President of the Inn from 2011-2013. This is an organization of Family Law Attorneys, Judges and Law Students. It was a wonderful honor and priviledge to serve as it's President for two years. Prior to serving as President, I served for two years as Treasurer. I currently serve on it's Executive, the management arm of the Inn.
I have had the distinct honor to be asked to teach my fellow lawyers legal topics, in the area of Family Law, for my colleagues to obtain their Continuing Education Credits through the Pennsylvania Bar Institute, the education arm of the Pennsylvania Bar Association. I enjoy teaching and am thrilled to have been chosen each year, over the last number of years, for this function.
I look forward to hearing from you.
